AHHHH GIU!!

Once you come out of the closet, you can never really go back in. When you come in last on your next race, just look back and remember me (or just cheat, hey, I do!!).

I loved the pics. I showed them to Kris too. The jacket is travelling the world, could not have found a better home. Take care, my friend.

Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice Giulietta is just really nice
OK OK OK...

Let's all get a grip......

1)..I have not been "converted" to slow crusing boats
2) Even if I decide to do it, and go live like Darth CD, Lord Cam, Darth TB or Seth PB...it will be after my kids are on their own, and only then
3) This was merely an "excursional" sail....just because I was "sail sick" of my Giulietta
4) I have been sailing for a few days now...and never heard of Capt. Ron (will try to see it, ok??), but it did not seem to decrease my sailing abilities ehehehehe we have other icons, here. the real ones...ehehehehehe like Da Gama, Cabral, Magalh„es (Magellan), etc....you know....real people, not Hollywoods ehehehehehe
5) I am not on the look for slow cruisers such as formosas, IP, Gozzards or such ....not yet....I still like to see my bow move forward with the wind....ehehehe
6) I have not been inside no closet...and if I come last, I will cry......

It was just a different fun I had...

SO CUT IT OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No closet, dark sides and light sides jokes......

This does remind me of a funny story though. A bunch of us went to lunch in our boats and on the way back, had an "informal" race. Here I am in my Hunter 26, stretched out on the cockpit seat, back against the stern rail seat, tiller on my belly, mainsheet across my legs, while the reigning champs of the marina in their Catalina 25 Tall Rig were tweaking like crazy trying to stay up with me. After a couple of miles, the wind shifted, and they finally caught up. Still tweaking, sweating like crazy, and I was still just sitting back, enjoying the sail. We both got back at the same time. They enjoyed the challenge of tweaking, I just enjoyed being on the boat.

Goes to show, it's whatever floats your boat.

OK...lets get things straight here...

1) a Catalina 25 isn't exactly the right example of a fast boat....
2) you were alone.....they were a few on a 25' it makes a difference specially after lunch
3) why they sweat???? were they rowing???? I've seen how CD's Catalina sails, with those underwater rows...
4) was your engine on???

Charlie...thanks for the compliment on the wife....(shhhhhht she reads this....don't say that too many times.....I have to put up with her afterwards ....)

Any way...it was a fun sail but I'm "Still on my side of the road"....I can see where this is all going now.....

I WILL NOT DO IT.........I RACE.....PERIOD.......

I'm telling ya Giu ..... you're in denial. Remember, the first step is admitting you have a problem.......

I think popping a little Buffet or Marley in his CD player on his boat will definitely slow him down, dream of the ride on the formosa, the waves, the main flapping a little in the breeze, the kids relaxed, the waves, gentle swaying of the boat, the waves, Cruising Dad's anthem (Sail Slow, Live Long) ringing in his ears, the waves...

He will be coming around... don't you worry.

PB...funny....

I will not have relapses....but...(laugh all you want) I went back to the Formosa today...just to look around and talk with Capt. Coy...

He laughed at TB calling me Capt. Ron......he knows the story..I have to get that DVD....

Anyway...like I said...one day...I will get something like that...not now...later....

Now...I must go back to my original tracks.....
